Jennings Tops Rankings at Ireland Trial

#ROWING: Sinéad Jennings topped the ranks of lightweight women at the first Ireland trial at the National Rowing Centre in Cork today. The St Michael’s woman took first from Siobhán McCrohan in the final, with Denise Walsh third. Claire Lambe, who was second to Jennings in the heats, just pipping McCrohan, pulled out of the final with an injury niggle.

Lisa Dilleen won the heavyweight women’s single sculls heat from Sanita Puspure, but Puspure won the final. Leonora Kennedy and Helen Hannigan (Walshe) were excused for being ill.

In the lightweight single sculls, Paul O’Donovan won from his brother Gary, who was 5.82 seconds slower. In the lightweight men’s pairs, Mark O’Donovan and Niall Kenny won well.

In the heavyweight single, Dave Neale won the time trial, but pulled out ill from the final, which was won by Turlough Hughes.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
